The 1980 Hague Convention was the response of the international community to the increase in the phenomenon of parental child abduction. However, behind the success of this Convention – which has now been ratified by more than 102 states – lie personal tragedies, academic controversy and diplomatic tensions. This book brings together all these strands to provide an in-depth critical academic analysis in light of the objectives of the Convention and other relevant legal norms, such as the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
